So, I am a new-ish knitter and I am knitting a jacket and everything has gone smoothly up to this point; I’m almost done with the back (working from the bottom up). I’m running into problems with the shoulder and neck shaping though. Here are the instructions:
I have 72 stitches
BO 7 sts, work 24 sts; join second ball of yarn and BO center 14 sts, work to end. Working BOTH SIDES AT THE SAME TIME, BO 7 sts at beginning of next row, then 7 sts at the beginning of next 4 rows and AT THE SAME TIME, BO 5 sts at each neck edge twice.
My big problem I’m having is how do I BO 5 sts at each neck edge? I can’t get rid of the extra loop! If someone could just break this down into simple terms for me it would be much appreciated because I am over thinking this way too much haha!
